Lately we’ve had a huge surge in New Patients. Most of these patients are completely new to acupuncture, some are not. Some saw another acupuncturist years ago for a few visits perhaps. One of my takeaways as one of the 6 acupuncturists here at Cloud 9 from the past few weeks is a reminder of just how powerful it can be to have a practitioner provide deep listening.
What do I mean by “Deep Listening?”
Many of our patients recently have said their peace and then looked at me with a soft smile and said, “wow, I feel like I’m talking to my therapist, but I’m more relaxed. I feel so much better.” Usually followed by, “Does anyone else ever tell you that?”
The answer is Yes. Many times. The reason patients have this healing experience so often is because we set a supportive environment where patients can bring any of their concerns or life difficulties to the table to be tended to. As an acupuncturist, I was also given years of training as a Wellness Coach, giving mindset shifting tools to carefully craft and curate for each individual patient at hand.
That’s not to take away from a psychologist or therapist. We refer out to therapists all the time and we respect the amazing work they do. At the same time, we acknowledge that acupuncture brings healing to what the Ancient Chinese described as “Body/Mind/Spirit” and we tend our patients knowing that what ails the mind will show up in the body, and what ails the body will weigh heavily on the mind. We are here to tend you by looking at you holistically (and as a whole).
I look forward to seeing you on the table soon, so we can continue to help you Find Peace, and Bring Your (maybe not so broken?) Pieces back together.

Often clients will hear their acupuncturists speaking about the five elements and their characteristics. The five elements are within us all, but we usually identify with one or two more strongly than the other elements. One of these elements is the Wood element. It is connected to the spring time which we are finally starting to see after this long and cold winter.
The Wood element is identified by its color, sound, odor and emotion which are green, shout, rancid and anger. What does that mean? Well, these are the things your acupuncturist is going to start looking for to see if you identify as a wood element:
We’ll look for things like, does the color green pop up around the client’s corner of the eye?
Does their voice hold a level of command and confidence to it when they speak?
Do they smell rancid like a freshly cut tree or mowed grass? Is there a level of authority, determination, focus or drive within them?
These are some of the questions I ask myself as a practitioner when I am in the room with clients. So, what do you think? Are you a Wood element?
